News from the Principal's Desk
Dear Tuscarora Families,
A quick reminder that the marking period ends this coming week. Please work with your student to ensure that they are completing all assignments, preparing for those last minute tests, end of unit assessments, and finishing projects. This is the time to make sure that grades that are right on the fence stay on the positive side. Finish strong and pay attention to deadlines, Titans.
One group in particular that we have been focusing on recently are our 9th Grade students. The challenge of matriculating to high school is difficult enough, and our Freshman have yet to enter the building. I want to commend those new Titan who have been persevering through the changes and demands of high school, and figuring out how to learn when everything is new. Parents of 9th Graders... if you've been challenged with the transition to high school, or simply want to be better oriented or know what your child's resources are, this is your opportunity to get help. Beginning next week, our 9th Grade Student/Parent/Counselor conferences will begin. These virtual sessions are perfect to allow you to ask questions, assess how your child is doing, and receive a quick orientation about course credits and a look to the future. This is an invaluable opportunity, especially during these challenging times. It is as easy as clicking the link in the story below in the news section based on your child's alphabetical counselor. It's the end of the 1st Term... now is the time!
I was very pleased to see so many Titans participating in this week's spirit week. Our Titan spirit of giving continue next week a toiletries drive sponsored by our Local Love and SGA. See the details below.
Have a wonderful Halloween weekend, Titans. Be safe in your neighborhoods!
Christopher Berry, Principal

For fast answers to your questions before calling the school or asking for assistance, this is a user-friendly guide. Please go to the link below, and bookmark it, or add the link to your toolbar.

Athletic Boosters - Our Titans Need your Help and Support!
FCPS Athletics is a MD State Leader! We are one of the ONLY local counties to have any sort of athletics occurring right now! The student athletes are having a blast, seeing their teammates, connecting with their coaches and staying safe! However, there are no competitions, and therefore, no athletic budget (which comes solely from gate receipts). The state is now looking at the possibilities of incorporating three shortened seasons in the spring, and there is a lot of work to be done to prepare and plan for such a non-traditional plan for interscholastic athletics. Please consider joining us to be a part of the solution. Our teams, our coaches, and most importantly, your students NEED our support and positivity now and this upcoming year. The loss of a traditional fall and winter ticket gate means the serious loss of all athletic funding. Come help us determine how we can/will be able to support ALL athletic teams moving forward.
BE A PART OF THE 2020-21 THS ATHLETIC BOOSTER CLUB!
As we prepare for whatever HS Athletics will look like during the upcoming year, the THS Athletic Boosters wants your input, welcomes your ideas, and needs your support. With the uncertainty of the upcoming year and the current financial conditions, this is the best possible way to help support the student athletes at Tuscarora. Each and every program is going to need our help navigating this year.
